Meagan did the day of coordination for my wedding and my cake! The cake was delicious and I couldn't have asked for a better day of coordinator. She subtly made sure everything happened on time, and quickly took care of any concerns I had that day. She even helped my mom go through the buffet line and get a plate for my grandmother (who is in a wheelchair). All at a price that was very affordable. I would recommend her to anyone.
Christine was very thorough in the planning process although I just hired her for day of coordination. Her services spanned way beyond that. She coordinated with my wedding vendors, led rehearsal and made sure things ran as smoothly as possible on the day off considering we had a rowdy bunch. The day would've been a mess without her help. Her husband also was a great addition and he kept things in order and running smoothly on the day of. I was able to ask Christine questions throughout the months prior to my wedding and she thought of things I forgot to cover. She and her husband kept their cool and were really patient with our wedding party. I would recommend her to anyone needed assistance with events. Great services at a great value
Ms. Stevens and her staff did an excellent job at my event. She created the best drinks I have ever had. Guests were impressed with her drinks and professionalism! I enjoyed her and her staff's pleasant personalities. She also made sure the bar and surrounding area was neat and clean throughout the event. Ms. Stevens went the extra mile! I recommend using her bartending service and I will continue to use her services in the future.
Bliss has been great to work with thus far. She's been very open to meeting my fiancé and I whenever we need. She's also more than willing to provide extra services on the day of that would make our day less stressful. She's been great to work with and I'd highly recommend her for anyone else looking for a great wedding coordinator!
We highly recommend Lilli's coordinating services based on our experience with her as our wedding day of coordinator. She delivers professional service at an excellent value. Before the wedding, she was organized, asked questions that we might not otherwise have thought of, and prevented things from falling off our radar. As promised, she learned all of our vendor details beforehand and contacted vendors to finalize their arrival. On the day of the wedding, Lilli did a great job managing everything. She put out fires for us, acted on our requests promptly, and communicated with us efficiently when our input was necessary but did not overburden us with details or decisions.
I hired Paris to direct my wedding the week before. I did not have flowers or a cake and had to change venues at the last minute. Paris was able to work in a limited time frame and pulled off an almost impossible job! I thought I was going to have to cancel my wedding but she saved the day. Thanks!
I don't even know where to begin, but I cannot thank the Alicia and the Essence Events team enough! truly offers the best in creativity, quality, service, and people. Alicia immediately picked up on my ideas and started throwing back complimentary ideas and sketches. I basically only had an outline for what I wanted for each event, and Alicia filled in the blanks with what she knew I would love and with what she knew would look over the top amazing. She immediately started sketching out our ideas and pulling up images to help with our design session. We were all extremely excited to see what they would create for us just minutes into the first appointment. The whole team is extremely thorough. They walked us through every aspect of our wedding weekend where we would need their services. They were always open about what could inflate our total cost and at the same time they always had great substitute ideas that would save us money. They are also very open about what is and isn't possible design/logistics wise. But I have to say, the possibilities greatly outweigh the impossibilities with them. Also, they are always quick to answer all of our questions, which is always appreciated. I know my review isn't pointing out a lot of specifics, but all I can say is that they are simply the best. They created magnificent dreamscapes for all our wedding events. I really wish I had more events for them to decorate for me! We are forever grateful and could not praise them enough!! THANK YOU ESSENCE EVENTS.
Excellent service! Michelle is punctual to meetings and always responsive to calls and emails. Great eye for detail and really a joy to work with.
Emily is very professional, organized and courteous. She was a tremendous help when we planned our wedding. At first, we only hired her to assist with the day of coordination, but as we got into the planning, we asked her to help with vendors- we were thrilled with the excellent job she did coordinating services and payments. Through out the process she continued to help us by taking on additional services, going above and beyond in all she did. The week of the wedding, we ended up have a significant venue change due to folks planning to attend who did not RSVP. (We should have had her help with the invite listing and follow-up too!) Emily helped us to switch gears and re-direct quickly with the hotel. I would definitely hire Emily with Galej Events again and would highly recommend her! Paula & Richie
Erica provided day-of coordinator services. She was helpful throughout the planning process and incredibly professional the day of.
Nasim has managed multiple events for our family. Nasim is first and foremost a stellar professional. She's organized, thoughtful, and creative. Nasim is the first of her staff to arrive and the last to leave. I've seen her effortlessly coordinate staff, facilitate deliveries, and finalize table arrangements. I've been particularly impressed to watch her creative savvy with limited Time and resources. But I have not once seen her lose her cool and consideration. And consistently her work exceeds expectations. We've been fortunate enough to work with her on small and larger events, including formal and informal settings. In fact we've booked her for another upcoming events next month. I'm looking forward to see what she comes up with – it's an absolute pleasure every time.
Makiba is the most upbeat, creative and organized person to work with. Her outgoing personality always renewed my excitement about my upcoming day each time I met with her. She is extremely driven and her high level of motivation only encouraged me even more to get stuff done off my never-ending check list. She stayed on top of me to get stuff done! But that was necessary because if she didn't, a lot of stuff probably would have been very last minute - or not done at all. I had a handful of DIY projects in mind to do - but I kept procrastinating. If it wasn't for Makiba, they honestly would not have gotten done at all! I'm so thankful she helped me with (or either did them herself!) my DIY projects. They added a really nice personal touch to my wedding and reception that would have been missing otherwise. I'm so thankful she helped me as much as she did. I could not imagine not having her there the day of my wedding - she handled so many behind-the-scene tasks that I was not aware of and probably would have stressed me out if I did! I cannot express how much I appreciate everything she did before and most of all, the day of my wedding. If you are a bride - you HAVE to get a planner to help you, even if it is just the day of assistance. Makiba will not let you down! Not only is she professional, but she is caring and has a personality that makes you feel like family.
I cant express enough of how great of a job Debra did. She was so professional and on top of everything. Her attention to detail, organization and, communication skills put me at ease during the stress of planning my big day. My guests, husband and I were WOWED by the wonderful job she did. I was so lucky to have found her and would highly recommend her to everyone.
My now husband and I utilized Visionary Concepts for their day of Wedding Cordination package. When it came down to the very little details such as tattoo coverup for my bridesmaids Visionary concepts did an exceptional job. We worked with Sharon for a month in a half prior to our big day, and you would have though we worked together forever. My family and friends said we hired great vendors. We pride visionary concepts on Their professionalism,and poise. If I could sugggest to any bride to be, it would be to hire a corfinstor and not and family member. Sharon thanks for marking our wedding a day to remember.
Claire was absolutely essential to our wedding day success. We had a 100% DIY venue and Claire and team pulled it together beautifully. It was everything I wanted my wedding day to be and more. Claire made it so I didn't have to worry about a thing! I can't recommend Claire Fedei events enough!
Since meeting Ema and experiencing her amazing ability to plan, coordinate, and execute various functions, Events by Ema has become a favorite of mine to work with. Not only is Ema sharp and detail oriented, she is also always a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Events by Ema for your next event.!

We were hosting a floral arrangement class at our apartment community to celebrate earth day and the spring season. Jean responded to our request and was so easy to work with and get in touch with. She gave us advice on what kinds of flowers to purchase for the event and some places to get them. She was amazing at the event and a everyone loved it. We all got to learn about flowers and how to make beautiful bouquets. Jean was able to connect with our residents and make them feel comfortable to express themselves through their bouquets.
Brandy is a fantastic wedding planner and designer. She was able to help us select our vendors and helped with every aspect of the wedding planning process. We were able to actually relax on the wedding day and walk into a beautiful wedding - totally worth every dollar. Would use High Cotton over and over again!
My wedding day would've been a complete fail without Natalie Bell. I pretty much had an idea of what I wanted it to be like, but with her help, she was able to make my wedding go exactly as planned! If she wasn't there to coordinate the ceremony and reception, we would've been so lost. If I had to worry about any of this myself, I wouldn't have been able to enjoy my big day. Natalie is super easy to work with, really friendly and incredibly organized. If I was able to do everything over, Natalie would be the person I'd call again. Thank you so much!"

Why hire me!? That’s a really good question, and one that is totally valid, because when all is said and done, hiring a planner is not absolutely necessary. I am sure that you could successfully plan your wedding/event yourself. However, not everyone has the time, nor wants to deal with the stress it can entail. People who plan events for a living have their methods down to a science that doesn't rival anyone else. As your planner, it would be my job to save you stress, effort, and time by doing for you what I do best. I can quickly use my list of vendors to book your event, keep your budget in line, help you create your venue floor-plan and timeline, and even brainstorm with you. Without a planner, the venue, the vendors, and even the wedding/event party will still be looking for someone to lead the way, and if not me, it will likely be the host of the event. However, a host has many other duties to fulfill that don’t include those the planner generally takes on, tasks that often happen during the event. How well will the host be able to enjoy the event if they are too busy orchestrating it from behind the scenes? I offer up my services not only to make the planning process easier with my expertise, but to coordinate the event while it’s happening so that you are able to enjoy the wonderful celebration you have put on.
